ST. JOHN’S CE PRIMARY SCHOOL RESULTS 2017

 

The information below compares the attainment of our pupils with local authority and national averages.  We are delighted with the very good results across the school.  They are a tribute to the children and all the staff.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage

76% of pupils in Reception attained a Good Level of Development against the Early Years framework.  This is above the local authority average of 74% and the national average of 70%.

 

A Good Level of Development is defined as children working at the expected standard or exceeding the expected standard in the key areas of literacy, maths, physical development, communication and language and personal, social and emotional development. 

 

Year One Phonic Screening

68% of pupils in Year One attained the expected standard in the Phonic Screening test.

 

Key Stage One

This is the second year of the new testing and assessment arrangements for Year 2.  These arrangements reflect the more challenging national curriculum which was introduced in 2014.  Therefore, results cannot be compared with previous years.  For more information please see the leaflet Information for parents from the Standards and Testing Agency. 

 

At the end of KS1 (Yr2), teachers are required to assess each child in the areas of reading, writing, maths and science.  National Curriculum assessment tests are used to support teachers’ judgements.

 

St. John’s performance in KS1 was above the national average in every subject area.  Attainment was in line or slightly above with our local authority in most areas.

 

The system of national curriculum levels has been removed and the new measures are as follows:

 

Working Towards – working towards the expected standard for their age

Expected Standard – Working at the expected standard for a child at the end of Year 2

Greater Depth – Working at greater depth within the expected standard, with a strong understanding of the curriculum

Key Stage Two

Children in Year 6 also took part in the second year of the new testing and assessment arrangements.  Pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum was assessed.  This curriculum provides greater challenge with higher expectations set for the end of KS2. 

 

The results of the SATs (tests) are reported using a scaled score, where a score of 100 represents the expected standard.  The highest possible score is 120 and the lowest is 80. 

 

Children are awarded one of the following Teacher Assessment judgements in writing: 

 

Working Towards – working towards the expected standard for their age

Expected Standard - Working at the expected standard for their age

Greater Depth - Working at greater depth within the expected standard and has a strong understanding of the curriculum

 

In addition to these measures and in line with requirements, we have reported the percentage of children achieving a High Standard.  Children with a scaled score of 110 and above are included in this group.

 

Year 6 pupils were assessed in reading, writing, grammar, punctuation and spelling, maths and science.  For further information, please see the Information for parents KS2 leaflet from the Standards and Testing Agency.

 

 

St. John’s pupils performed  above the national average in all subject areas.  Attainment was also above local authority averages in each area (with the exception of Greater Depth in writing). Please note that these results are provisional.
